Still Together

You were not the most handsome guy,
Standing out in the crowd was not your way

Yet you stood for me when I had none to hold onto –
Keeping me safe from the wary eyes,

Being stout and all it was funny to watch;
You held your ground against them,

May be it was your confidence or the attitude
I know not what brought us close,

The way your shoes were never polished,
Your frequent lame jokes,  never seemed a fault.

Yes I knew I was falling for you,
May be I should have spelt my LOVE

But it was the time to put a period behind my thoughts,
I couldn’t destroy your life with your little family;

I have never expressed my feelings
And we’re still friends,

Probably this Is the best way we fit Our lives peaceful, with us still together.
